2007-11-06 13:37:02.0 Brian Kamenetzky: fletch- It's certainly a possibility.
2007-11-06 13:37:51.0 Mikey: I think that a starting 5 of Fish, Kobe, Butler, Odom and Bynum would have been pretty good. Oh well.
2007-11-06 13:38:06.0 Andrew Kamenetzky: Mikey, I agree.
2007-11-06 13:38:09.0 Brian Kamenetzky: hari- I don't think he'd have slipped much more, but generally if you want a guy you should go get him (Renaldo Balkman like exceptions aside) rather than play chicken with trading down a few spots.
2007-11-06 13:38:19.0 ah81: I think Kobe should grow his afro back
2007-11-06 13:38:20.0 STLKobefan: Hello home boys. The majority of the team has Zero trade value. Except for Lamar. He is inconsistent, doesn't bring it every night. Isn't there someone who can help them that Lamar will bring.Lamar for Artest?
2007-11-06 13:38:34.0 hariyahu: BK, based on how exactly Kwame had performed till then, I wouldn't have been surprised if he could have been picked for the MLE. May be not. But 8M was definitely bad for a #1 pick that had shown very fleeting glimpses of "potential".
2007-11-06 13:38:44.0 Mikey: Artest would just be the 07-08 Rodman. Hopefully the FO doesn't want to repeat that debacle.
2007-11-06 13:39:09.0 Andrew Kamenetzky: Plus, I didn't like the idea of trading for Kwame right on the heels of drafting Bynum, who's already a project. Throw in the fact that LO has always been inconsistent and you need someone to be a rock with Kobe. Butler could have been that guy, which is why it struck me as shortsighted from the jump to trade him.
2007-11-06 13:39:13.0 eagleboy: Rodman wasn't a debacle for the Bulls
2007-11-06 13:39:34.0 Elle: Is Rodman still alive? (serious question)
2007-11-06 13:39:36.0 Brian Kamenetzky: hariyahu- Obviously we'll never know, but remember, this is the NBA. Look around at the money some of these guys get, and then decide if it would be outrageous for Kwame to have gotten paid like that.
2007-11-06 13:39:52.0 ah81: Ak,BK,,,, What do you think of Rick Bucher? Is he credible?
2007-11-06 13:39:58.0 eagleboy: Rodman said he wants to coach in the WNBA
2007-11-06 13:40:06.0 Luhnez: Ric Bucher is the 2007 Jim Gray
2007-11-06 13:40:21.0 Luhnez: Kobe's people call Bucher and let him know that they'll give him interviews
2007-11-06 13:40:23.0 eagleboy: Rodman as coach would be fun to watch
2007-11-06 13:40:24.0 Elle: Ohh I'd pay to see that
